  • Little help with a 1700series router.

    Alright, I'm sitting in my highschool classroom right now, beating my head on my desk because the router I"m supposed to configure still has the username/pass from the teacher that was teaching before my current one.
    This means 2 things. 1, I can't get access to the router to finish my work, and 2, we basicly have a useless router.
    Do you guys know how I could reset the username and password to the router? I have no access to any functions because I"m stuck at the username enter part. I've tried combos of the teachers name and the tech that worked during his stay's names, but it doesn't work.

      doesn't reset the password according to my teacher, he says he's tried doing it. All other documentation involves me being able to do commands in the router, which I can't since I don't have the password to the thing. I"m really at a delimma, because out of the 3 of us in Comp Networking semester 3, I get the 1 router that has a username/password on it.

        it will work!
        by changing the configregister, you're able to boot the router without loading the startup-config.
        Then you can modify of even erase the config. After changing the config register back, it will load the (modified) startup config again.

          Hi W,

          If the instructions that Biggles directed you to aren't too clear, I actually created a short free video on how to reset the password on your router. Take a look...

          Biggles - thanks for your help!

                Read this article from the Cisco web site. Have your teacher read it as well.

                  I ceratinly wasn't saying that Biggles instructions weren't clear - to me they where "crystal". I just meant that some people are more visual and might like a little video....
